Nearly six months after its successful launch in July, Birch still manages to captivate the hearts of the public, as the widely popular brunch and dining spot is always booked out on weekends. It doesn’t deter the crowd, walk-ins are aplenty. When we visited on a Tuesday night, it was bustling with activity: families and after-work crowd alike. Birch is born from the creators behind the Huckleberry Group, as guests will see a hint of it in its dinner menu. Taking pride in its philosophy, Birch focuses on providing good, honest, comfort food; highlighting contemporary takes on Latin, Nikkei, and Neo-Asian cuisines – with the help of a Josper oven (a sophisticated version of a barbecue grill) in its kitchen, umami and juiciness of the meats cooked on it are guaranteed.
We sampled a hearty selection of dishes from Birch’s dinner menu to bring you our must-try picks.
The Birch dinner menu is available from Monday to Saturday, 6pm till late.
CORN BREAD AND TRIPE CHILLI CON CARNE
If any two dishes on the menu deserve to be joined by the hip, it’s these two under Birch’s Cast Iron selection. Baked with fresh jalapenos and topped with truffle honey butter, the corn bread makes a warm toasty meal on its own; but pair it with the hearty Tripe Chilli Con Carne and you have the perfect marriage of comfort food.
